Angel of Grief - Hill Family

This is the Angel of Grief monument in the Hill family plot in Glenwood Cemetery in Houston, Tx. It is one of genre known as Angel of Grief, Weeping Angel or Grief en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_of_Grief. This is one of three Angels of Grief in Houston and one of two at Glenwood. This is truly a beautiful monument and very poignantly expresses the grief of losing a loved one all too soon. At some point the statue had lost the left hand but has been repaired within the past few years.

 

I saw my first Angel of Grief in Scottsville, TX back in 1984 and knowing there was one in Houston I made an effort to visit Glenwood. I'm so glad that I did. Glenwood has now become one of my favorite places. It is so beautiful, quiet and peaceful.
